Calcium and phosphorus homeostasis are important for establishing and preserving the skeletal mechanical structure and for multiple cellular processes. The primary organs involved in these processes are the skeleton, the intestines, the parathyroid glands, and the kidneys. Calcium and phosphorus regulation requires interactions between multiple hormones and transport systems. This chapter will review the contributions of these organs and the relevant hormones for calcium and phosphorus regulation. As will be seen in Chapter 16, disruptions in these systems contribute to some disorders of skeletal and mineral metabolism.
